The article presents a case study of a seven-month-old female Continental giant rabbit weighing 5.5 kilogram with a four-week history of bilateral pelvic limb lameness. It states that there was bilateral pelvic limb muscle atrophy on musculoskeletal examination, and pain was elicited when the coxofemoral joints were manipulated. The article discusses spontaneous femoral capital physeal fractures in a Continental giant pet rabbit.
